's the kind of environment that incubates what might be the next groupon or grubhub. this week, scott case, one of founders of priceline, hosted a forum on what it takes to launch a startup these days. "when you look at startups, try to network for captial for talent and for customers." one of the attendees, jere mcallister, who created a music media magazine for the ipad called "groovebug," just launched an app with iconic jazz label blue note. "we've partnered with other tech companies and they helped open doors for blue note." mcallister is one of more than a hundred entrepreneurs who see america's future in its startups, not necessarily in silicon valley. "we have the capital and supportive environment for these early-stage companies." the startup america partnership was launched last year. it provides startups with access to corporations, investors and services they need to grow. the latest survey of small businesses shows a slight dip in optimism. overall, the index for the national federation of independent businesses dropped 1/10 of a point to 92.8. behind that number, owners plann

light sleep or deep aspect, you want to have a dark environment. dark environment releases a hormone meltonen. >> you put it over your eyes and you really block it. >> when it's light out, your body inhibits the release and, that's your sleep hormone, you release it. in a quiet environment, you want to make sure you have a quiet environment because that interrupts your sleep cycle, too. >> ear plugs or white noise. >> ear plugs are like white noise, but when you sleep with the tv on, set the alarm. 20 minutes later, it turns off automatically. >> a constant battle at my house. an alarm clock, you say. >> ideally you wake up without an alarm clock. if you need it, usual it initially. but you want to wake up without it and you want a good pillow so you have the good proper mechanics. >> that is a comfortable looking pill pillow. >> keeps your body laying correctly. >> napping is okay, but don't throw off your sleep schedule. >> get a schedule, get a schedule. high quality. >> take some vacation time. sleep a lot. all right, mark, thank you. nice to see you. >> thanks, randi. >>> just b
, i learned on the campaign trail. there's always a winner and loser. the political environment just like the business world, is highly competitive. with every campaign season there's always a new crop of start-ups. innovation incubators. and so, i guess the campaign is a little bit of an entrepreneurial showcase. i think a lot of us think we see these ads and i guess keeping the campaign is disliked a big marketing machine that spits out the ads we see on tv and the candidates are sending mail to us an e-mail to our in box and the phone calls and so forth. but if you peel back the curtain, you might find something. a something difference you find a very complex, highly detailed operation. there's a million things happening at once. there are things happening around the candidates, there are things happening around the headquarters operations, things happening in field offices. everything from where a candidate will stay, who will stand with the candidates, what site he should choose for that and how many people should come to the event and right down to the helium in the balloons an
know what the economic environment is here in the states and globally. so you just cannot have high expectations. and if you have a good surprise, let's say overall earnings rather than the 2.4% let's say earnings are up, 2 to 5%, you know s that really a big surprise? i'm not really sure it is. because you are still pretty close to 0. and nobody is expecting the economy to really accelerate over the course of the next couple of quarters. >> susie: all right so, what is going to be driving investment strategy over the coming weeks and months? is it going to be the earnings or is it going to be more of the big economic picture and the elections? >> how does this play out in the markets. >> well, i am a top down guy. so i want to know what the global economy is doing. i want to know what the u.s. economy is doing. in my mind, we're going to be in this modest growth, modest inflation environment for a while. i mean at least through 2013. but i think it is going to be positive. i think the types of sectors that we're looking at are the ones that are really going it to be sensitive to a
with and work with there for the environment we had, we felt we needed more, not less. >> $64,000 question, of course, is so why would requests like that go unheard and unanswered? >> that's the big question. when asked who said that, he said the state department superiors. and there is one woman testifying today, charlene lamb, deputy assistant secretary, where it seemed that the buck stopped with her and she was the one that said, you know, need to keep the security to a minimum. soledad, what officials are saying is, listen, there was security improvements made to the consulate, to the office, over the last several months, leading up to the attack because there were other attacks on the consulate. there was this ied attack and other western targets. but what they're saying is the kind of assault that they suffered that night, this 40 armed gunmen, outmanning everybody there, they say that no reasonable security presence could have fended off what they had that night. and so, yes, there will be a lot of questions about whether there was adequate security, but they're saying really we cou
art program continues its 30-year legacy of integrating art into the airport environment with the addition of five new commissions that are as bold and dynamic as the new building. >> this project was completed in record time, and we were able to integrate the artist's early enough in the process that they could work with the architect said that the work that is completed is the work that really helps complement and instill the space as opposed to being tucked away in a corner. >> be experience begins with the glass facades that was designed with over 120 laminated glass panels. it captures the experience of being under or over clouds when flying in a plane. depending on the distance or point of view, it can appear clear for more abstract and atmospheric. the subtle colors change gradually depending on the light and the time of day. >> i wanted to create an art work that looks over time as well as working on in the first glance. the first time you come here, you may not see a. but you may be able to see one side over the other. it features a couple of suspended sculptures
-rate environment is tough. the spread between deposits and loans narrowing. on the other hand there's pretty good activity, housing is picking up, credit is getting better. as we look at the bank earnings we have to differentiate who is hit by that net interest margin issue and who can benefit on the other side. we look at citi and think they can report a good monday on positive-- monday so that could be positive. on the other hand bank of america facing pressures from the deposit versus lending squeeze. >> you told me citi was your top recommendation right now. tell us why? >> well, we look at citi and it's a bank that has not performed as well as some of those other tough ones like bank of america this year. on the one hand. on the other hand we think it's a great play on what the federal reserve is doing. when they put all this money into the economy they are 12i78ity-- stimulating housing. citi has problem relating to housing. they are stimulating emerging markets where citi is the strongest. >> all right, let's take a look at some of your other picks besides citi. you like goldman sachs. you
you could even say we're a little bit ambitious. right. you come in to the environment, many people came in without a job. they were volunteers and want to get a job. some people -- they want to get noticed by the right people. and they, you know, and you have people who have been hired who want maybe more responsibility. right than they probably traditional in their job. and the department heads who are racing against each other maybe to get a little more budget than the other and get a little more turf than the others and you might expect. you have the thing going on it's a chaotic time. you need to get control of this. because, you know, in this environment, where there no sort of norms, it's like building -- it is like building a village from scratch. everybody comes to a place with no rules or enormous, no structures, right, it's like the wild west. and not everybody, you know, some people who, you know, have their own tactics for getting their own way. right. sometimes even good people lose control of the inner jerks. it's a problem early in the campaign. we all have them. com
insulated in this environment, they're going after a high income consumer with a decent value proposition. >> michael, obviously gas prices are a real factor here, they tend to sell at a loss, it affected the quarter, this quarter. is it your view that will continue to be at least an influence on results in 2013? >> yeah, that's the thing that oftentimes investors don't recognize that gas does influence costco. oftentimes they strip it out when they're talking a little bit about, when they're talking about what their earnings look like. i think it will be under pressure, although it's hard for me to imagine gas at $5 a gallon doesn't have more downside than upside and a quick comment, if i was unclear, i completely agree with the other guest. i think they are going after a high-end consumer that is trading down, as i think melissa correctly pointed out. they're going for nordstrom's consumer, looking to be more efficient. >> and yet at the same time, michael, just to ram home that valuation point, it's twice as expensive as for example target or walmart in terms of what you're paying for
bank and under the current regulatory environment, as bank took a look at his business plan and said here is your problem -- you are asset rich and cash poor. he said i know that, if i had the cash it would not be here for a loan. he would have to over collateralize a loan by 150% under the current regulatory environment. i want him to be able to grow his business. it's a classic example of regulation killing jobs. we need to make sure we have the proper amount of legislation but not overregulation. my commercials talk about reducing spending, and powering our work force for training for jobs available and developing a comprehensive energy policy to put our people back to work, energy independence to protect our environment. >> 30 seconds to rebut. >> you have been running some of the most deceitful attack at the state has ever seen. don't try to pretend that has not been what's happening in that race. when your campaign was asked why you don't start talking about the issues, your campaign manager said it would be a senseless exercise. that's right. for linda mcmahon talking at the i
to be thrown into the chaotic, swirling environment of a dense neighborhood in jakarta, indonesia, not knowing the language, not knowing anything, looking a little different. he had to fend for himself. every step along the way, there was some aspect, deep aspect of him where he was alone. >> narrator: then, when he was ten, his mother sent him to hawaii to live with his grandparents. >> i think it's natural to assume that your father be absent, then form a relationship with your stepfather, and then be separated from him and be separated from your mother and go live with your grandparents who at that point you don't really know that well... it must have been profoundly unsettling. >> his early life is a constant stream of people leaving, of him being left. his mother, his father, his grandparents constantly moving. his whole life is really a, sort of a classic search for home. >> narrator: they lived in a small two-bedroom high-rise apartment in honolulu. >> his grandfather was a heavy drinker. what surprised me as i was researching my book was actually the president himself telling me that h
. it is the excessive regulation, it's the excessive costs that they face and it's the uncertain economic environment. and we talked before, uncertainty that's holding consumers back from spending and holding business owners back from being able to invest in their business, and there's no permanence in the tax code and there's no clear path for the future and there's a mountain of debt facing us, so it's not just one thing. if it's one thing, it would be an easy fix, it's a whole host of things, and that's what's creating this environment where small business owners and big business owners alike are really hungry for change. stuart: all right, carol roth, you're in chicago and come and see us again soon in new york city, we'll be waiting for you, thank you very much, carol. >> got it. it's 9:49. your gold report. where are we? i've been away for a couple of days and we're still at the high level. not quite at 1800, 1767. the new york yankees pulled off a victory last night by benching a guy and putting in a guy making a fraction of the money. does it prove once and for all that money doesn't buy you
're the best environment for the talent spent before we go to questions, jay, then i want to talk about campaign financing. >> so you're looking at california right now, and that massive increase in the cost of gasoline, when matt said, when consumers are paying for gasoline they are not able to purchase their basic commodities every day. so what's happening? governor brown is proposing a relaxation of regulations that impact the energy industry. that is clearly a concession that regulation drives the cost of energy. we've got to have that same focus and discussion here in washington. because what's happening in california can happen all across this country. >> hawaii, i heard -- >> when we do the big deal everybody thinks we have to do entitlements and defends on one side and taxes on the other. if you have a school pashtuns do with two legs he usually falls over. if we look at what the canadians did with their cash cow, we have more cash cow in energy than any of them. and we can do spending. we can do taxes, and we can to energy which is our cash cow if we go to and you can make a re
holder today praised the libyan government's response. it's a challenging environment in which to operate but i think we have done pretty well given the circumstances in which we find ourselves and we found ourselves able to move about and do the things that we have wanted to do because of the assistance we've gotten from the libyan government as well as from some of our other allies >> sreenivasan: a u.s. house committee holds a hearing tomorrow on the consulate attack. in pakistan, a taliban gunman shot and wounded a 14-year-old activist known for promoting girls' education. malala yousufzai was hit in the head and neck during the attack in the swat valley region. doctors said the wounds were not life-threatening. yousufzai spoke out on girls' education at a u.n. children's assembly last year. the taliban called her work "an obscenity" in a statement claiming responsibility for the attack. one out of every eight people on earth is going hungry, according to a u.n. report today. that comes to 870 million people, but it's far below the figure of one billion announced in 2009. the u.n. foo
point here is that people are desperate for some kind of growth in a low-growth environment. there's a company even though it is hard to categorize that's had notable growth. here's another company that's a play on the real estate industry. still right now $32.90 to $33. >> i think it is just going to be a couple minutes, folks. bear with us. >> couple minutes, bob. >> we've got a couple of companies very much on the move. i think this linkedin. very overvalued stock on an earnings basis -- >> you like linkedin. >> you want momentum, linkedin lass it. momentum obviously trumps at times valuation. people saying that the quarter could be much better than spefktespefk expected. johnson controls looks like to be the next one that's going to not be able to make the numbers. wells fargo goes buy to hold. europe, we've totally forgotten the fact that europe -- spain did get downgraded. >> it's funny we haven't mentioned that at all today. >> isn't that incredible? that was the dominant theme in europe that perhaps this downgrade is going to cause the spanish to say, listen, we do need the
about monetary policy and current environment and focus primarily the role of large-scale asset purchases. before doing so let me note the usual disclaim, the thoughts are about to give you are my own and do not necessarily reflect the views of others on the fomc. there is a considerable diversity of views within the fomc and within, among economists more generally about the use of large-scale asset purchases, lsaps and other unconventional policy tools. this healthy given unenviable circumstances we find ourselves. let me be clear where i stand. i support the committees decision of last month, namely to initiate purchases of mortgage-backed securities, mbs, at a rate of $40 billion a month in tandem with the ongoing maturity extension program of treasury securities. and to plant a con to continue those purchases if the committee does not observe a substantial improvement in the labor market outlook. given where we are and given what we know i firmly believe this was the right decision. in my comments today, i'm only going to briefly review the kise for taking that action as tha

, given the environment we're in, does seem a touch odd. > > so what do you look at that's important? do you look at the payroll numbers? do you look at the participation numbers? > > all of them are important. they all serve and weigh into your forecast. the participation number is important because you need people participating in the workforce to push a country forward. that's at the lowest level it has been in 30 years. so there are fewer people today participating than there have been since 1981 in the workforce. the overall employment number is probably the most respected, the 114,000. that's crucial for the economy. you really need to see that kick up into the 200- to 250,000s before we start making headway into the employment problem that we have right now. > > every month they revise that number, so that will probably be changing soon. > > sure. these all are- not guesses, but there's a lot of deviation around them. and as we saw, i think last year's employment numbers were revised up 384,000 are the latest numbers. > > we'll talk to you in a month to see if we can stop scratchi
